(TV SERIES) Scorpion Season 1 - A Team of Geniuses To Save The World

As I was accompanying my wife while she was writing her blog during the last long weekend holiday, I went through some TV series that I could watch via online streaming and I stumbled into this one. I remembered seeing a list of series that would be returning in 2016 and I read about this series with its premise of a team of geniuses that had to save the world. Sounds promising, right? So why don't we go direct to the series now?

Brief Story Line

The pilot episode introduced us with a genius person who was working on some wireless problem in a diner named Walter O'Brien (Elyes Gabel - A Most Violent Year, Body of Proof TV series etc). The diner was a place that he would regularly goes where he noticed a waitress named Paige (Katharine McPhee - The House Bunny, Shark Night 3D and runner up 2006 American Idol) who was taking care of her quiet boy named Ralph (Riley B. Smith).

Aftermath - An Arnold Schwarzenegger Drama Movie Inspired by True Events

A film that had Arnold Schwarzenegger playing usually quite interest me. He was one of my favorite action star in the 1980s and 1990s but since he became the governor of California, there were very few of his films. And unfortunately it was no longer action movies. The premise of the movie was drama, so I was not sure whether to watch it or not. But since it was the only film premiering yesterday and after I asked my wife to see if she was interested, she was quite convinced that the movie would be to her liking. And so we went to the cinema nearest our home in Setiabudi and saw it at 7.15 PM. Well here goes the movie.

Brief Story Line

Roman Melnyk (Arnold Schwarzenegger - Terminator series, Commando, True Lies and many more) was a construction worker who was looking forward to meet his wife and daughter to come home from their trip. He left work early so he could pick them up in the airport.

(TV SERIES) Legion Season 1 - A Very Unique X-Men Superhero Series

I had seen the promotion trailer to this TV series few weeks ago and I noticed it was based on X-Men from Marvel. So it should be interesting to see it. Two weeks ago, I found out from my wife's nephews that the series was already completed as it was only having 8 episodes. I decided then it would be easy to finish off the first season and see what the fuzz was all about. Here goes.

Brief Story Line

The pilot episode started with the introduction of David Haller (Dan Stevens - Beauty and the Beast, Downton Abbey TV series etc) from the very young age till the time he was admitted to a psychiatric hospital due to nervous breakdown and diagnosed as schizophrenic. He was sometimes visited by his older sister Amy (Katie Aselton - The Gift) who obviously loved him very much and wanted him to be healed.
